Hello there,

When i try to a perform "Add/Remove Software" on my new FC5 install with
GNOME as the window manager i get the following error:

Unable to retrieve software information

Am i missing any RPMS ?

Thanks.


You can see if the software updater is complete by opening up a terminal and verifying pirut using rpm -qaV.

Mostly though, the problem is due to repos not being reachable for the program to operate. The program relies on access to the same repos that yum and the software updater use. Getting updates from the CDs or DVD do not work right now. The problem should be fixed soon in an update for FC5. (not sure of when)
